I am a film composer looking at purchasing a small mixer, initally as someting to control output busses. I like to have music, sound design, dialogue seperated in output busses (when/ if they are provided ) so that I can balance the elements when previewing the composition with the director. Also, when I export audio, I don’t have to worry about the other sounds being added by accident (which used to happen a lot, doh!). By having the mixer there, I wont have to reach for the mouse, and can control multiple channels at once.
Can the BCF2000 control output busses, and how does one set this up? Would this be using the mackie settings or some custom thing?
I suppose the other alternative is an external, audio-only mixer, but I am hoping to kill two birds with one stone by having the mixer as a DAW remote control. Any ideas?
